he company hopes to start construction this spring.

"This proposed space will help us better accommodate our customers and maintain the highest level of customer service our users have come to expect from us," Hawthorne Global General Manager David Annin said in a news release.

Airport Chairman D. Court Harris called Hawthorne "a great partner" and celebrated the expansion proposal as "a significant investment in our airport and in the community."
